The “Queen of Christmas” Mariah Carey is finally in the number one spot for her iconic Christmas hit, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”
Released 25 years ago, this is the first time the song has hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Carey recorded the holiday song when she was 24. Since then ‘All I Want for Christmas’ became the holiday kick-off anthem every year! It is also the first Christmas song to top the charts since The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late) in 1958.
“We did it,” Carey tweeted.
